DIY Hot Glue Gun Holder

Hey friends!

I hope you are all having an awesome week!  I am here today to share  my DIY Hot Glue Gun Holder!  This baby is something every girl needs!

My Meme gave me a glue gun holder years ago.  I loved the idea, but there were things about it that didn’t work so well either.  So… I came up with a ‘Shanty’ version we can all make together!

This is such an easy project, and would make a great ‘make & take’ for a girl’s craft night!

So… Let’s get started!


For those of you that don’t own a saw, this is a perfect one for you!

This is actually the saw that I started with before getting my ‘big daddy’ saw, and I still put this to use.  You just mark your cut line with a pencil, and saw the board on your line!  Easy and NOT scary… Promise!

See… Told you this was simple!  I LOVE mine!  I use it every time I pull my hot glue gun out.  It keeps it standing up and when the glue piles up on the tile, you can just peel it off easily after it dries.  The bomb.

Here are a few more shots of mine in action ;-)!

Hope you like it!  If you purchase the materials needed to make this, you can easily make 8 or so for right around $1 a piece… Woohoo!!

Thanks SO much for stopping by!  I would LOVE for you to PIN and share this baby below!  Have an awesome Wednesday!

    Today, I used power tools for the first time ever (I’m almost 32) and I can’t cut straight to save my life, but I’m proud of what I did! It’s mine and I did it all by myself and I thank you for the turtorial and making it a little easier for me! 🙂

    Love it, made it today, I did not have a tile so I used a jar lid and it came out great. Thanks so much for sharing!

    What is the saw you use? It says “this is the saw…” but there’s no picture of a saw…
